Do you mean hide the BCC field when composing an email?

In your email, check under Options. There should be a 'Show BCC' button there, allowing you to show or hide

I'm not competent in regard to implementation but I believe it would be possible to disable the BCC option as part of the policy BUT even if you do (I believe) it would still be available from the address book so to what point?

Short answer then is it can't be done ... but who knows someone could prove me wrong.

Note as a fallback you could implement a check on send, and delete the BCC entries ... but that will only work on macro enabled PST but perhaps something can be done via a rule on exchange but again the BCC option would still be present.

Exchange rules are however beyond me i'm afraid.

>>> is there is a monitoring software can detect who BCC something that you know of?  
    again short answer no i'm afraid - but I would imagine if there is then it will have to be on the exchange server again to avoid users disbling VBA/rules

In the abscence of any response from anyone with exchange knowledge I would comment that you want a blanket ban on BCC display/function and exchange might prevent the transmission, might move to 'to' filed instead BUT it will not prevent outlook client displaying the BCC field in the various locations.
