Definitely OK. ISO 9002 meant that all manufacturers had to put shorte use by dates on films, actually it applies to many products it's more to do with stock rotaion than shelf life.

Films now have around 2-3 years expiry datye compared to about 5 not so many years ago. I bought short dated HP5+ a few years ago and only finished it recently about 4 years past the expiry date and it was no different to fresh film. (Stored in a drawer in Tyrkey, not a refrigerator).
