This sentence confuses me a little. What is the use of voor here? Thanks! :)

It is part of the verb voorkomen. It means something like "to appear/to happen".

The stressed syllable is voor. In Dutch, there is also the verb voorkomen with stress on kom. This means "to avoid" and it's a verb that can not be separated unlike vóórkomen.

"Het komt veelvuldig voor" wordt afgekeurd! Is dat correct?
