If you change "face" to "faces", then you are using the indicative mood, but modern English tends to use the indicative where in the past the subjunctive would have been used.
Use of the subjunctive gives an elevated and formal style to writing. Using the indicative gives a plain and straightforward style. It is often possible to use modal verbs instead of the subjunctive, and these can give a variety of shades of meaning. In a document giving recommendations on UK local government, the indicative was used 5 times out of 7, and a modal (should) was used once (one instance used a plural subject, so the subjunctive and indicative were identical in form).
So the following are all correct, with the same meaning:
The report recommends that he face the tribunal [Subjunctive]
The report recommends that he faces the tribunal [Indicative]
The report recommends that he should face the tribunal [modal]
