"Here comes Gilbert Wimple; he's with the Committee on Experimental Charms; he's had those horns for a while now..."
—Arthur Weasley pointing out individuals to Harry and Hermione at the Quidditch World Cup.[src]

The Committee on Experimental Charms is a committee within the Ministry of Magic founded by Balfour Blane who lived in the late 1500s to early 1600s. Gilbert Wimple was a member in the early 1990s (although it is not known how long he worked there).

The function of the Committee is to oversee the use and development of experimental charms. In 1992, the Committee had to deal with some extremely odd ferrets found in the possession of Mortlake. The Committee once made a study on the percentage of wizards and witches that believed that Atmospheric Charms should be regulated due to their effect upon the environment.[1]
