you got the title wrong of this page, in the book its called either "International Code of Wizard Secrecy" / "International Confederation of Warlocks' Statute of Secrecy". The Unbeholden 13:59, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
- It's referred to by this title in Quidditch Through the Ages (real) - all the names may be used to describe the same regulation. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:14, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
- How "International" was the Statute, originally?
- Was any explanation ever given for why Qing Dynasty Chinese wizards or wizards in Tokugawa Shogunate Japan or Joseon Korea would adhere to the Statute of Secrecy?

This a fantasy series, as such historic data does not match fictional history. My guess would be that in the early 19th century when the western powers (such as the british) begun to take over eastern nations, wizards and witches of britian and asian nations might have come to some sort of agreement.

- Perhaps for the very same reason the western societies did: because of the escalating attempts by Muggles to force witches and wizards to perform magic for Muggle ends, or the increasing efforts by Muggles to force witches and wizards to teach them magic (which, when denied by wizards, naturally, provoked some kind of tension in wizard-Muggle relations). -- 11:01, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
