Abstract: A regular semigroup $ S$ is locally inverse if each local submonoid $ eSe$, $ e$ an idempotent, is an inverse semigroup. It is shown that every locally inverse semigroup is an image of a regular Rees matrix semigroup, over an inverse semigroup, by a homomorphism $ \theta $ which is one-to-one on each local submonoid; such a homomorphism is called a local isomorphism. Regular semigroups which are locally isomorphic images of regular Rees matrix semigroups over semilattices are also characterized.
