The Broom Regulatory Control has the authority to determine what factors allow an individual to use and ride a broom. People in this division also are allowed to design and create new brooms, even without affiliations to broom companies.

He shrugged. "Odds and ends, mostly. I've been doing a little research into different woods and spells to help create a new broom... but the real broom creation happens with the companies... not here. I've mostly been helping manufacturers make sure their brooms are up to code and safe."
She'd frown slightly, curious. "There's...regulations and stuff for brooms?"

He nodded. "Of course there are. Just like nobody's supposed to just create a Portkey by themself without going through the Ministry... nobody's just allowed to make themself a broomstick-- especially one they'd be selling to other people."
She'd wince slightly at his portkey comment...did he know how her parents had...well not died? Probably not. "Yeah I can see how that would be an issue. So...I was curious. When I'm gone what do you do with yourself? Do you have friends you hang out with or...a hobby you do or something?"

He shrugged. "I used to get dinner with Evangeline-- but now that she's been made Headmistress, that won't happen. Sometimes I go flying or... read a book or... listen to the radio." He shrugged. "I've got a few Hogwarts mates around, but most of them have families or significant others now."
"There was one in a cage in the poacher's camp. It wasn't an adult and was hurt so I did what I could and let it out but...I felt like I would have been able to do more if I knew more about them." She'd shake her head slightly and move on. "...but talking about Brazil I realized you were right and I was wrong."
