Writing a test requirement document

Hi there,

Sorry to ask you this question here. But there is no section for Testing related questions so I am asking here.

I need to write a test requirement document and I am not sure what exaclty the contents should be.  

It is not the requirements for the product, as we normally do as developers.  But this is a Testing Requirements doc.  Is it a popular doc type? What should I cover in the document.  I would really appriciate your early advice.  
Thanking you,
Thanesh

I just took a software engineering class. Here are some sample docs supposedly the way "professional IEEE engineers" do things.

IEEE Software Testing Standards:
http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~workman/cen5016/IEEE829.pdf

IEEE Software Review Standards:
http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~workman/cen5016/IEEE1028.pdf

Overview of Software Testing:
http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~workman/cen5016/Lec9-TST-Spr04.ppt

Example Software Testing Doc Utilizing IEEE Standards:
http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~workman/cen5016/Lec10-TST-IEEE829.ppt

The main page is

You should find a ton of useful stuff there.

It will also look like any other doc related to engineering process (Like SRS, HLD, LLD etc).
So, it will contain the following headings:
1. Introduction
2. Purpose
3. Scope
4. Acronyms and Definitions
5. Requirements
6. Cross Matrix
7. Acceptance Criteria

I feel that, this should be same as SRS document. Whether it is a testing requirement or a development requirement, the fundamental thing is same - Requirement. So, this has to capture the requirements exhaustively.
So, it should be ok to put it in the SRS document only.

Is there are any sample document you can point out. Like I told you, I am looking to write the Test requirement so that Project Management will know what do I need to test the product. I am not writing the product requirement so that QA team can focus on to test against that requirements..

Any help is appreciated....
