The management of gender information by institutions and governmental bodies is fraught for transgender individuals. This paper aims at fleshing out policy recommendations for managing gender information in institutional and governmental contexts. Firstly, the author considers the various relevant ethical considerations which should guide policy, and distils them into four guiding principles: necessity, accuracy, consensuality, and de-gendering. Secondly, the author applies these guiding principles in four contexts of information gathering. Thirdly, the author sketches how and what gender information should be requested, recorded, and recounted when justified under the proposed framework.
