The head of the office, Arthur Weasley

The Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects was an office located in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic. The office was created by Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in 1996 after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in response to the crisis in the country.

Its purpose was to confiscate fake protective spells and charmed objects (such as cursed sneakoscopes, or in one particular case, a medal that turned the user orange). It was unclear as to the purpose of making these devices, whether it be simply profiteering, or if it was something darker, as some of the confiscated articles were highly dangerous. Most of the perpetrators were described by Molly Weasley as people such as Mundungus Fletcher who had not worked an honest day in their lives. However, occasionally something exceedingly dangerous did turn up.

The most recent head of office was Arthur Weasley, who was promoted from the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office in 1996. Arthur had twelve people working under him in the department at that time.
