Anyway to check? I don see any prints on the cable that state the status of the cable.

Any tests I can do to verify it?

The only way to test it is to send it to a testing lab unless you want to spend a whole lot of money on equipment. Even that would cost more than a new cable.

The only designation that counts for HDMI cable is standard speed and high speed.

But just plug the cable in. If it works then it's compliant to your requirements.

For now...

There is no guarantee that it will continue to be...

FWIW if you don't see sparkles or worse, it is already as good as it gets.

The best way to verify compliance is to get your supplier to send you a copy of his compliance certificate. If he has a pre-1.3 certificate for a length at least as long as your cable, the cable is 1.4 compliant as a "standard" HDMI cable. If he has a 1.3 certificate or 1.4 certificate indicating "Category 2" or "High Speed," then it's 1.4 compliant as a "high-speed" cable.
