Abstract: We use the Effective Field Theory (EFT) framework to parameterize Beyond Standard Model (BSM) effects of New Physics (NP) in terms of higher dimensional operators. Focusing on a certain class of dimension 6 operators which is generated by heavy vector fields and couple fermion and scalar currents, these operators induce new non-SM contact terms. We then probe the high-energy behaviour of these new interactions, as well as the deviations from the SM in the future International Linear Collider (ILC), bearing in mind their bounds from Electro-weak precision measurements.
