Help wanted: aging train wheel axle integrity inspection

Dear Friends,
We have a number of aging train wheel axles. Now we would like to check and find the ones are still safe and good for further usage. We are not sure of the techniques, equipment, standards methods and international codes, training and certification of personnel for this issue.
We are happy if you could advice us regarding any of these problems.
We thank you for the feedback in advance.
Best regards,
Nguyen Van Hao,
