Prior to 1965, MACUSA legislation introduced in the late 19th century made it mandatory for every witch and wizard in the United States of America to carry a wand permit. This measure was taken to keep track of all magical activity and quickly identify any wizards who used their wands in noncompliance of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy and Rappaport's Law.
