Abstract: A partial order on a semigroup $ (S, \cdot )$ is called natural if it is defined by means of the multiplication of $ S$. It is shown that for any semigroup $ (S, \cdot )$ the relation $ a \leq b$ iff $ a = xb = by$, $ xa = a$ for some $ x$, $ y \in {S^1}$, is a partial order. It coincides with the well-known natural partial order for regular semigroups defined by Hartwig [4] and Nambooripad [10]. Similar relations derived from the natural partial order on the regular semigroup $ ({T_X}, \circ )$ of all maps on the set $ X$ are investigated.
