Lemma 35.28.3. The property $\mathcal{P}(f)=$“$f$ is open” is fppf local on the source.

Proof. Being an open morphism is clearly Zariski local on the source and the target. It is a property which is preserved under composition, see Morphisms, Lemma 29.23.3, and a flat morphism of finite presentation is open, see Morphisms, Lemma 29.25.10 This proves (1), (2) and (3) of Lemma 35.26.4. The final condition (4) follows from Morphisms, Lemma 29.25.12. Hence we win. $\square$
