"But the vapour was dense, and it was difficult to make out anybody's faces. Detached from their owners, voices sounded unnaturally loud, Harry thought he heard Percy discoursing loudly on broomstick regulations, and was quite glad of the excuse not to stop and say hello..."

These broomstick regulations were enacted by the Ministry of Magic sometime before 2017. These regulations were the object of Percy Weasley's conversation on Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, on 1 September, 2017.[1]
