We demonstrate here the timing capabilities of the ART-XC telescope
on the time scale from several milliseconds to few seconds. The work was done
based on the data of observations of several pulsars emitting in X-rays. The
observations were carried out during the in-flight Calibration and
the performance verification (PV) phases. Using these data we tested
the stability of the on-board clock and found that the clock is slowing down
with rate approximately 10 ms per day. This lag have been confirmed
also by measurements from the on-ground receiving stations.
