Abstract: In this paper we present a generalization of the Nagata-Smirnov metrization theorem. We prove that a regular $ {T_1}$-space is metrizable if and only if it has a base of open sets which is the union of countably many hereditarily closure-preserving subcollections. In addition, we investigate intersections of hereditarily closure-preserving collections of open sets.
