Some countries in all three Regions have no equivalent FCC to govern
their amateur radio rules and regulations so they rely on IARU guidence.
Bermuda is a member of Region 2. You might find their "rules and
regulations" interesting especially on AM operation.
Also, ARRL President said: "The Region 2 band plan accommodates DSB AM 
operation. For example, if you look at the segment 7100 - 7130, you will
see a asterisk by the 2700 bandwidth."

The 7100-7130 is a typo. The 40 meter segment on the IARU Region 2 band
plan that has the asterisk really says 7100-7300.
