The Monte Carlo event generator BabaYaga has been developed for high precision simulation of QED processes (e+e−→ e+ e− , e+e−→ µ+µ− and e+e−→ γγ) at flavour factories, chiefly for luminometry purposes, with an estimated theoretical accuracy at the 0.1% level or better. QED radiative corrections are included by means of a Parton Shower in QED matched with exact next-to-leading order corrections to reach the required accuracy. The latter is assessed by means of consistent comparisons to independent calculations and an estimate of the size of missing higher-order corrections. The main theoretical framework is overviewed and the status of the generator is summarized.
