IBM introduced a new option in z/OS 2.2 for VSAM by IBM OA46090/UA75830 changes for VSAM EXCEPTIONEXIT,
 - z/OS 2.2
 - z/OS 2.1 and 1.13 with APAR OA46090 applied

So needs READ authority to the resource IDA.VSAMEXIT.xxxxxxxx in the IBMFAC resource class where xxxxxxxx is the EXITNAME parameter value of EXCEPTIONEXIT or SYNAD parameter.
