The European Bureau has implemented the new charging standard since April 1, 2014.
The costs associated with European invention patents are adjusted every two years by the EEA. A few days ago, the European Commission published on its website the "Decision of the Administrative Committee of the European Commission on December 13, 2013 to amend Article 2 of the Regulations on Costs and to adjust costs".
The charging items and contents in the decision that are more closely related to the Chinese applicant are selected and translated as follows:

Article 2 of the Regulations on Costs is amended to read as follows:
Fees under the European Patent Convention and the Regulations of the European Patent Convention (only those fees that are more closely related to Chinese applicants are selected below)
This Decision shall enter into force as of April 1, 2014.
The above new fees apply to fees paid on and after April 1, 2014.
