**Abstract:**

Electric dipole moment (EDM) is a quantity that violates time-reversal and parity symmetry. Assuming the CPT theorem, it is a CP-violating observable. In recent years, precision measurements of EDMs have been making great progress. This talk will focus on CP-violating interactions in several extensions of the Standard Model: leptoquark, dark photon, and effective field theory, and discuss their possibilities taking into account current restrictions from the EDM measurements.
