In the talk the leading four-loop contribution to the beta-function of the strong coupling in the SM is discussed. Some details of calculation techniques are provided. Special attention is paid to the ambiguity due to utilized γ5 treatment and a particular prescription with anticommuting γ5 is advocated. As a by-product of our computation the four-loop beta-function in QCD with “gluino” is also obtained.
