A ship carries a Statement of Compliance issued by a classification society. Is it statutory or non-statutory?

Non-statutory. As soon as the flag State becomes bound by a Convention requirement (e. g. when the Convention has entered into force), any Statement of Compliance should be replaced by a statutory certificate issued by or on behalf of the flag State.
