Geant4 is a Monte Carlo toolkit well established for large scale simulations for high energy physics, medicine, space science and other applications. Electromagnetic (EM) physics libraries are key components of these simulations. In this work we describe the Standard and Low Energy EM libraries available in Geant4 version 10.3 including descriptions of new models and interfaces relevant for dark matter searches and limits of applicability for these models.
