The double-stack Multigap Resistive Plate Chamber (MRPC) is the detector chosen for the large time-of-flight array of the ALICE experiment at CERN LHC. The system has to cover an area of 160 m2 and will consist of 1638 of such a detector. In this paper the quality assurance tests for mass production of MRPCs are described, together with the results of the tests over a sample of 18 detectors performed at the PS facility at CERN.
