The word 'statutory' is used as an adjective and one of the distinct features of this adjective is that it should not be used independently but usually before noun. The meaning that you can figure out from the word is something that is fixed by law or made mandatory by law. The following sentence can help you in understanding the word as it is illustrated in the context: The authorities are unable to implement the statutory duties and that made court furious.

The word is one of the most common among the terms related with law and you can find its use on a pack of cigarette also. It is written on the packs that it is a statutory warning that cigarettes are injurious to health.

Statutory meetings are the ones that are governed by law. Registered companies must adhere to the Companies' Act - this is set down by Local Government - Regional, City and District Councils are also governed by the requirements set down in statutes
