Where do BT Openreach's responsibilities stop at the exchange end?

At the end of the 'jumper' the connecting wire between BTw telephony equipment and the bar pair.

On full LLU lines they also own/maintain the 'tie pairs' between the MDF and the LLU equipment.

Why do you ask ?

Curiosity in view of the potential split from the rest of BT.

On the Openreach website the faq says:

"Q6 What does 'improving service' look like?
Openreach strives not just to provide, maintain and repair the access and backhaul infrastructures, but to improve both service and reliability. We are also reinventing our infrastructure to support the continuing success of the UK telecommunications industry - ultimately enabling it to deliver more choice, better products and lower prices for its customers and to build profitable businesses."

which AIUI conflicts with what you said as it includes backhaul!

I was more wondering about the possible split from the rest of BT and what might be involved. How much of the exchange and backhaul equipment for phone and broadband services are Openreach responsible for?

Not really.
An Openreach provided backhaul circuit (e.g. an EAD or EBD) will be a separate circuit from the exchange to the Service Providers' network.
The principle is still the same where Openreach are responsible for the circuit, but not the equipment it's plugged into at the end.

Lots. BT Wholesale pay Openreach for backhaul from exchanges and core network. They are Openreach's anchor tenant. TalkTalk and Sky pay Openreach for most of their backhaul circuits which they use to connect chains of exchanges and in some instances from the exchanges to their own networks. WLR is managed by Openreach.

As Ignition has said, it's not quite as simple as that because Openreach provide the backhaul at most of the exchanges for the LLU providers anyway. Very rare to see a manhole outside of an exchange that says Easynet or Sky on it, for example. So the split would become even more complicated if you think about it.

I read the OP as referring purely to the consumer* line.

To extend that post to cover all the functions of and facilities/products Openreach provide, which others are doing in this thread, doesn't feel to me to be a valid thing to do.

I cannot believe such a question would have been worded as the OP is. It would surely have been more direct, such as "What does Openreach do as well as supply consumer* lines?"
* - Including business lines.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
