We are two-thirds through the reporting workdays for the month of January 2021 and OGD has reported 35 full approval actions and 4 tentative approval actions (total 39). If the pace of approvals does not pick up in the last 6 reporting days, we are set to have a total of full and tentative approval actions of about 52. That would be the lowest since February 2018, when there was a total of 37 (32 full approval actions and 5 tentative approval actions).
We are hoping that the last 6 days of the month might be more productive and boost the numbers, otherwise this could be one of those “not so good months” OGD previously warned us of. We will give you an update a few days after the month closes out.
