The Tile Calorimeter (TileCal) is the central hadronic calorimeter of the ATLAS experiment presently in an advanced state of installation and commissioning at the LHC accelerator. The complexity of the experiment, the number of electronics channels and the high rate of acquired events requires a detailed commissioning of the detector, during the installation phase of the experiment and in the early life of ATLAS, to verify the correct behaviour of the hardware and software systems. This is done through the acquisition, monitoring, reconstruction and validation of calibration signals as well as cosmic muon data. To assess the detector status and verify its performance a set of tools have been developed spanning from the hardware detector verification tests and the online monitoring to the offline reconstruction. Tools allowing for a fast and partly automated analysis of the result have been also developed. The system is completed with web interfaces to allow for remote monitoring and data quality assessment. This set of tools is the prototype of the final TileCal data quality system that is under development and it is highly integrated with all ATLAS online and offline frameworks. A review of the TileCal data quality system, current developments and the future foreseen upgrades will be presented together with a selection of results.
