TSRGD stands for Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions.

TSM stands for Traffic Signs Manual.

TSRGD refers to any of a series of statutory instruments and is often followed by the date of a particular version (for example, TSRGD 1964 or TSRGD 2002).

The current TSRGD has the force of law and prescribes what traffic signs can legally be used on UK public roads. Before installing signs not prescribed by TSRGD, a highway authority must seek and obtain special permission.

Large organisations with private internal road networks may use similar signs if they wish but these are not required to comply and have no legal force.

The Traffic Signs Manual contains the same information as TSRGD in a form intended to be helpful to engineers working for highway authorities and having the responsibility of specifying signs.

For more information see Traffic Sign Design.
