This talk will review issues found when dealing with outer boundary conditions for Einstein equations. We will discuss the need for them in light of recent results and present some alternatives.

In the case boundary conditions are needed, we will present the status of current techniques and discuss how recent understanding of the problem can be employed to remove possible inconsistencies of `standard approaches.'

Finally, we will refer to the open issues and their relevance to current efforts.
