The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures is the second largest Department in the Ministry of Magic. It is divided into three divisions named after the three categorisations of magical creatures: Being, Beast and Spirit. It also houses the liaison offices for Goblins and Centaurs.

After leaving Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Hermione Granger briefly worked in this department before transferring to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

In the Ministry, the phrase "being sent to the Centaur Office" is an in-joke meaning that the employee in question is about to be sacked.

Office of Misinformation

The Office of Misinformation is a section of the department employed during the worst magical-Muggle collisions, when an incident is so obviously magical in nature that Muggle authorities have a hard time explaining it. The Office of Misinformation shall immediately contact the Prime Minister for Muggle to explain about the magical accident with any Muggle-worth reasons and excuses.

Ministry Classification of Magical Creatures

  • XXXXX: Known wizard killer / impossible to train or domesticate
  • XXXX: Dangerous / requires specialist knowledge / skilled wizard may handle
  • XXX: Competent wizards should cope
  • XX: Harmless / may be domesticated
  • X: Boring
