The 127th SS-Standarte was the last Allgemeine-SS regiment established by Nazi Germany before the defeat of the Axis powers during World War II. The unit was established on December 1, 1944 in Oslo and was used as a German liaison office for both Germanic-SS units and Waffen-SS foreign legion commands operating out of Norway. This was the only regiment of the General-SS officially established in an occupied country, although General-SS regiments did exist in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia which was technically a puppet state.

The only commander of the 127th SS-Standarte was SS-Oberführer Erdmann Skudlarek. The command was disbanded upon the German surrender on May 8, 1945.
