I learned in my time with the Open University that asking a question on a forum is the very best way to work out the answer for yourself or even to realise that you knew the answer all along :-)

Good luck with your application

Stephen, apart from the general problem of using acronyms and assuming that the reader will understand them, there is also the issue that in this text age, people are losing the ability to use the "shift" key(s) not least since it is no longer called "SHIFT" on the typical keyboard.

So, in my book the acronym that was troubling you should be abbreviated to TMPs not TMPS.

....or TTMPs if you are applying e.g. for a position where highways works are done - Temporary Traffic Management Plans.

...and if so, perhaps you should see if the audience understands you if you refer to "The Red Book". Google WILL find it by that!!

Presumably you are aware that there is no legal requirement for one or more RAMSs!
