railwheel inspections

I am researching the national regulatory structure for in- service inspections of rail wheels in Germany, France and the UK. I am specifically interested in what bodies determine flaw evaluation criteria, training or licensing of inspectors in this industry, and how are inpsection requirements established into national regulation or law.

Re: railwheel inspections
You may try to contact the Railway Committee of the DGZfP at:
http://www.dgzfp.de/?page=fa#Bahn
The chairman is Hartmut Hintze from Deutsche Bahn AG.

If you see the exhibition e.g. Krautkramer, Scanmaster etc., these companies supply in-service inspection systems and may know also details.

If you use "Search Exhibitors' Homepage" you will receive 337 matches for search term rail*.

In Article Descriptor Search you can select "railway wheel" and find 10 results: http://www.ndt.net/cgi-bin/htsearch?selection1=&selection211=&selection21=&selection22=CT__railway_wheel&selection23=&selection3=&selection4=&selection5=&selectionyear=&find=&format=long&matchesperpage=10&config=localdes&restrict=www.ndt.net%2Farticle%2F&method=and&words=%2B%2BCT__railway_wheel

Examples:
Ultraschallprüfeinrichtung für die Fertigungsprüfung von Eisenbahnrädern
http://www.ndt.net/article/dgzfp02/papers/v35/v35.htm
"Ultrasonic testing of railway wheels in production."
The article refers to european standard prEN 13262 [1],
however, this is for in production test.

Computergesteuerte Ultraschall-Radsatzprüfanlage - ein Beispiel für ein neues innovatives Prüfsystem.
http://www.ndt.net/article/0798/vogt/vogt.htm
This article describes a train wheel inspection systems for the production line and refurbishment.


Last not least I hope that experts of this forum can post some more information.
