Abstract: Let *A* be a -algebra with an identity. Consider the completed tensor product of *A* with itself with respect to the minimal or the maximal -tensor product norm. Assume that is a non-zero -homomorphism such that where is the identity map. Then is called a comultiplication on *A*. The pair can be thought of as a 'compact quantum semi-group'.

A left invariant Haar measure on the pair is a state on *A* such that for all . We show in this paper that a left invariant Haar measure exists if the set is dense in . It is not hard to see that, if also is dense, this Haar measure is unique and also right invariant in the sense that .

The existence of a Haar measure when these two sets are dense was first proved by Woronowicz under the extra assumption that *A* has a faithful state (in particular when *A* is separable).
