Here is my best explanation:

'compulsory' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'measure for about a month' is the wordplay.
'measure' becomes 'en' (en is a kind of measure**).
'about' says the letters should be written backwards.
'a month' becomes 'dec' (Dec is an example).
'dec' backwards is 'ced'.
'en'+'for'+'ced'='ENFORCED'
