several years ago I got a pdf from cisco with a detailed description in which order a cisco switch/router processes the different configured features on an interface such as access-lists, nat, policy-maps etc.

Does anybody know where I can find this documentation on cco?

Best Regards,

Have a look at this link. Although it is about NAT the tables shows what order things are checkied in when they arrive or leave an interface.

Hope this is what you are looking for.
