Abstract: Quasi-varieties of first-order strutures were studied by N. Weaver [7] to generalize varieties of algebras; he also established some Malcev like conditions for these classes of structures. Following this line we extend some results of functional completeness of algebras to first-order structures. Specifically, we formulate and characterize a notion of quasiprimality for first-order structures.

Keywords: quasiprimality, first-order structure, $\star$-congruences
