Abstract: Given a self-similar set K in $ {\mathbb{R}^s}$ we prove that the strong open set condition and the open set condition are both equivalent to $ {H^\alpha }(K) > 0$, where $ \alpha $ is the similarity dimension of K and $ {H^\alpha }$ denotes the Hausdorff measure of this dimension. As an application we show for the case $ \alpha = s$ that K possesses inner points iff it is not a Lebesgue null set.
