The permanent station network in the Republic of Serbia was established towards the end of 2005 when it started to be used for commercial purposes. The network was primarily developed as a support to users in surveying, but also as a support with solving problems in the field of engineering works, developing geodetic network and navigation. Consequently and depending on the required accuracy, the network was conceived to have three customer services. For the current commercial purposes, the RTK service of the network has been most commonly used, mainly for surveying. Therefore, we have tested the accuracy of RTK service. Also we have established whether this service has been realised in compliance with the projected accuracy. For that purpose, experimental measuring has been conducted on the points with already known coordinates and a detailed analysis of the obtained results has been carried out. The conclusions of the conducted experiment are that the RTK service of the permanent station network provides accuracy of coordinates of newly established points within the margins of 2-3 cm, which has been foreseen by the general design of the network.
