To be honest your best bet is to change all of the doors for the cheapest fire-proof ones possible. Once regulations have been approved change them back to the originals.

You can apparently get a fire-proof veneer to insert in the weaker panelled areas, but as there is no proof your original doors have a 30 minute burn-through protection they won't be signed off.

Believe me I had a look at so many different routes in order to comply with regulations whilst keeping the original doors and couldn't find a satisfactory work-around.

If you find one I'd be more than happy to hear about it.

To add further insult to injury this rule was only applied in the past decade so previous loft conversions did not require fire-proof doors yet have approved regulations.
