French term or phrase: laisser a la demande
Context: Provisional Acceptance report of an automotive production system.

The report...valide l'ensemble des essais fonctionnels, la documentation et la formation. L'intégrateur (supplier in this case) pourra laisser à la demande du personnel qualifié en maintenance.

Thanks!

Explanation:
"Laisser" requires a direct object, stated or implied. In this case the thing that can be left is probably the report (but you will be in a better position to judge).
If the above is confirmed by your full text and the position of the sentence (conclusive), then I suggest:
CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE BY THE SUPPLIER TO QUALIFIED MAINTENANCE PERSONEL, UPON REQUEST

Thanks - your suggestion was very helpful, given the weird structure of the sentence. It helped me make it work.
