Lemma 15.40.4 (Composition of regular maps). Let $A \to B \to C$ be regular ring maps. If the fibre rings of $A \to C$ are Noetherian, then $A \to C$ is regular.
Proof. Let $\mathfrak p \subset A$ be a prime. Let $\kappa (\mathfrak p) \subset k$ be a finite purely inseparable extension. We have to show that $C \otimes _ A k$ is regular. By Lemma 15.40.3 we may assume that $A = k$ and we reduce to proving that $C$ is regular. The assumption is that $B$ is regular and that $B \to C$ is flat with regular fibres. Then $C$ is regular by Algebra, Lemma 10.111.8. Some details omitted. $\square$
