Anyone know if there is a clearance requirement for the minimum distance of a hand dryer from a sink installed in a restaurant bathroom?

The plumbing code says 15" from centerline of the sink to any obstruction. That is all I am aware of.

Check the manufacturer's installation instructions. Listed items must be installed according to the listing instructions.
