Abstract: The intent of this paper is to present a set of axioms that are sufficient for a closure operation to generate a balanced big Cohen-Macaulay module $ B$ over a complete local domain $ R$. Conversely, we show that if such a $ B$ exists over $ R$, then there exists a closure operation that satisfies the given axioms.
