High-precision experimental measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson at GeV as well as electroweak precision observables such as the W-boson mass or the effective weak leptonic mixing angle are expected at future colliders such as the FCC-ee. This high anticipated precision has to be matched with theory predictions for the measured quantities at the same level of accuracy. We briefly summarize the status of these predictions within the standard model and of the tools that are used for their determination. We outline how the theory predictions will have to be improved in order to reach the required accuracy, and also comment on the simulation frameworks for the Higgs and EW precision program.
