A slower film like 7212 or 7217 would likely be fine after three years of refrigerated storage. But if it were not handled or stored properly (e.g., it spent a few days in a hot camera truck, or was air-shipped and x-ray inspected), there could be issues.

For anything critical, have your lab run a clip test.

"should" be OK, same factors in play. I have had some Double X in my freezer for 10 years, (loaded into still cassettes) and last time I tried one it had avout 25% degradation. (base fog up)
