My supervisor gives me a comment. I have to respond to her comment. In my report, I should refer to her comment. For example,

Comment ......

My response:

This has been inserted as commented by the supervisor.

Is this a correct and accepted English sentence?

    What sort of report? is this an academic relationship where they are giving you advice on editing a thesis? or is it more kin to a work report, with multiple sources where you need to show proper accreditation for each bit ? – Smock Jun 20 '19 at 12:52
  • @Smock. Hi. Yes, it is an academic relationship where they are giving me advice on editing my thesis. – Mary Jun 22 '19 at 12:34
  • "My supervisor noted that <insert comment>" | Next paragraph : "<Response to comment>" – Smock Jun 24 '19 at 11:26

It doesn't sounds very natural to say "as commented by", although I can't find any sources to say it is incorrect.

I would consider:

...as suggested by...

...as recommended by...

...as recommended, in the comments, by...

Or alternatively, but I wouldn't recommend in this context:

...as commented upon by...

Here is a good article on where to used commented.
