personal data compliance officer
Explanation:
The refs suggest to me that this is all to do with legal requirement about data protection, and that a "personuppgiftsombud" is a person charged by law to ensure compliance with the 1998 Swedish law on Data Protection. Local authorities etc must appopint such a person.
In English, I think "representative" is too weak. Such a person would more likely be called a compliance officer.

Slighty corrected (no \'of\'\' after report!!!!!!):
The applicant is reminded of the responsibility, where applicable, to report the matter to the relevant Personal Data Compliance Officer.

Explanation:
Personuppgiftsombud är en sådant där fanastiskt svenskt 'compound' att man måste skriva om. Och troligtvis uppger (supplies) ombudet personuppgifterna.

Explanation:
That was definently better than my try... that whole sentence was tricky indeed. But maybe this will work:

The applicant is reminded of the obligation, where applicable, to report the matter to the relevant Personal Identification Officer.
