Abstract: Let $ S$ be a commutative semigroup which is a topological space such that the translations are both continuous and open maps. The main result states that if (1) either $ S$ is Suslin such that there is at least one point of continuity for the semigroup mapping $ S \times S \to S$ or $ S$ is polish and (2) $ \exists $ a nontrivial Radon measure on $ S$ such that $ \mu (V) = \mu (x + V)$ for $ V$ open $ \subset S$ and $ x \in S$, then $ S$ can be embedded as an open subsemigroup of a locally compact group. It is also shown that if $ S$ is polish and a cancellation semigroup then $ S$ can be embedded as an open subsemigroup of a group.
