Intercept Procedures are detailed on Page 149 of the Skyway Code https://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/CAP1535S%20Skyway%20Code%20Version%203.pdf

I keep the pdf version of the Skyway Code on my iPad along with SkyDemon and therefore have ready access to a range of very useful information as well as fulfilling the legal obligation. During the London Olympics I printed out and laminated an A5 copy of the procedures to go on my knee pad, but I was paranoid given my post at the time.

PS I was ramp checked by the French Air Police at Verchocq, many years ago, and they congratulated me on being the only Brit that week who knew what they were asking for.

That's correct, for Part-21 aircraft. (Not currently required for Permit aircraft, etc)

It is quite a recent change, introduced with Part-NCO; previously Interception Procedures only required for foreign flights.

From the latest SkyWay Code:

In Switzerland I was asked for my Journey Logbook many years ago.
Fortunately I had a notepad with all the legs and times so far, and they accepted this.

@Dave W, I see that you quote the trusty Skyway Code for interception procedures.

Who produced the Skyway Code? Couldn't be that organisation you've lost trust in, could it?

This discussion around intercept procedures has been interesting, but perhaps only very slightly interesting.
... and the stipulation for them to be on board may be the easiest of all the myriad requirements under which we labour.

This works:
1. Find them*
2. Stow a laminated copy on board when aircraft first registered.
3. Leave until aircraft written off 50-odd years later.

We have much more pressing calls on our time.

*easiest bit of the lot
eAIS ENR 1.12, or
Skyway Code, or
ICAO Annex 2, or
just about every flight guide I've ever seen.
