ACL are applied either for inbound or the outbound traffic on an interface using:

ip access-group in


ip access-group out

Inbound access lists apply to traffic as it enters an interface.

Outbound access lists apply to traffic as it exits an interface.

The whole idea is whether you want to filter inbound packets or outbound packets.
