If by PQS you mean – Pharmaceutical Quality System, it means the same as QMS.
The terms QMS and PQS can be used interchangeably, but when you say PQS, everybody knows you are talking about pharma.
QMS= Quality Management System. It is a general term and usually follows the foundations of the ISO9001 standard.
The PQS, however, is much more robust and strict than ISO9001, as it must comply with laws and regulations. Therefore, many things are “good to have”, and ISO QMS are mandatory in the PQS.
