An important ingredient in the search for new particles and rare phenomena is the correct estimation of the expected contribution from processes originating from the Standard Model. The search for a new vector degree of freedom, the Dark photon, is affected by the precise knowledge of the electromagnetic interactions. In the case of invisibly decaying Dark photon produced in e+e− annihilation the evaluation of the background should be performed with less than 1% uncertainty since the sensitivity of the proposed experiments depend lineary on it. The present status of the background estimation and the considered processes are reviewed and discussed, with a special attention devoted to the possible unresolved issues.
