You have to carefully read what the "certificate" means, who does it, and what kind of warranty. Nobody that I am aware of will give you a 100% guarantee that you are always going to get 4k, 4:4:4...

18' shouldn't cause you any problems but that does seem to be around the length that a lot of folks start to have issues with HDR and some cables. Which High Speed HDMI cable do you have?

The cable is just a data pipe, it can't make video/audio any better. You either get the signal without issues or not. If you are attempting to push the HDR signal longer than about 20', 24Hz or 60Hz...
