The aim of this paper is to derive pseudo-BCK algebras from directoids and vice versa. We generalize some results proved by Ivan Chajda et al. in the case of BCK-algebras. We assign to an arbitrary pseudo-BCK algebra a semilattice-like structure and observe that this is the point where directoids are different from the semilattice-like structures. Finally, the relation between commutative deductive systems and derive directoids from a bounded pseudo-BCK(pDN) algebras and a characterization of commutative deductive systems of a bounded pseudo-BCK(pDN) algebra in terms of directoids is discussed.
