As a relatively simple and purely leptonic state positronium constitutes a unique system to study discrete symmetries with precision limited only by the effects due to the weak interaction and photon-photon scattering. The experimental tests in the positronium decays were performed only on the C, CP and CPT symmetries with sensitivity much smaller than the predictions which opens a large window to search for phenomena beyond the Standard Model. In this article we present capability of the J-PET detector to improve the current precision of discrete symmetries tests in the decays of positronium atoms.
