panel clearance question

I am installing a new sub panel in my workshop area and want to place out of the way behind the door. I understand that I should have 30 inch left to right clearance. does that mean 15 inches from the center of the panel or can it be 30 inches in total width but 10 inches on one side (from center) and 20 inches on the other (from center)?

In essense, does the 30 inch clearance HAVE to be centered?

It does not have to be centered. The panel can be all the way to one side if you like.
