    Your sentence is fine. Problems sometimes arising when two ing words (participles/gerunds) follow one another. To learn more, you can google double participles or look at previous questions such as this: english.stackexchange.com/questions/167739/…. – Ronald Sole Mar 19 at 12:54

    It's OK. You may be thinking about the so-called doubl-ing constraint, where with certain verbs, two gerund-participles cannot occur consecutively, as in *"They are starting quarrelling". – BillJ Mar 19 at 12:56

Yes it is correct. Using abbreviations is just adding more information.
