Assessment of Timber Panelled Flat Entrance Doors

I'd like to ask for views on how you go about assessing the above.

I'm conscious that the current available guidance sets out that doors incorporating panels are unlikely to be suitably fire resisting (with 44mm core thickness being the recognised acceptable standard). However, I'm seeing an increasing number of panelled timber fire door products, and often come across existing timber panelled doors in a block of flats which are uniform in design and appear to be the original doors. When such doors are in sound condition and also incorporate other features of a fire door assembly which you would expect to see (suitable self closers, fire rated hinges, suitable intumescent strips and cold smoke seals etc), would you consider the door to be non fire resisting simply based on the panelled design and a lack of manufacturers test evidence to the contrary?
