Coming off the March total of 117 (ninety‑six full approvals and twenty‑one tentative approvals), April’s numbers are good but fall short of any big records. April saw the OGD unofficially issue sixty‑four full‑approval actions and eleven tentative‑approval actions for a total of seventy‑five approval actions. If these figures hold firm when the official numbers are released, April will be the third highest month for approval actions this fiscal year.
Just to frame the approval numbers, the average number of full approvals per month for the first six months of FY 2023 was 61.3, and for the twelve months of FY 2022 it was 60. We will report back once the official numbers for April 2023 are released.
