It is well known that a linear code over a finite field with the systematic generator matrix [I/P] is MDS (Maximum Distance Separable) if and only if every square submatrix of P is nonsingular. In this correspondence we obtain a similar characterization for the class of Near-MDS codes in terms of the submatrices of P.
